ProSight Duo Identity Verification
Progent's ProSight Duo suite of managed services incorporates advanced technology from Duo, a Cisco Systems company, to deliver multi-factor ID validation solutions. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the pillars of zero-trust cybersecurity design. 2FA utilizes different-band ID verification to provide a second level of protection beyond just passwords. 2FA protects against the most common causes of cybersecurity break-ins including phishing, brute-force password attacks, and stolen credentials.
Duo's one-tap Mobile Push application simplifies authentication
Duo's Push App saves time and distraction by permitting users to confirm their identity simply by touching "Approve" on the authentication prompt on their own iOS or Android smartphone or watch. This one-touch procedure eliminates the need to retrieve an email or text and copy a passcode manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo line consists of three subscription-based services that progressively add features. ProSight Duo MFA allows organizations to implement Duo's two-factor authentication technology to guard all apps while providing essential access controls, centralized management, and fast provisioning. ProSight Duo Access supports all the features of ProSight Duo MFA and adds adaptive ID validation controls and extensive endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond brings the ability to identify company as distinct from personal devices, block suspect devices, and give users safe and transparent access to internal applications. Progent is a certified Duo Managed Service Provider and can help your organization to design, implement and maintain an advanced identity authentication system that provides top-level security without disrupting your users.
The overwhelming majority of cybersecurity breaches exploit compromised passwords. Each service plan in Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of access security solutions can eliminate your sole reliance on passwords by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you sign into a protected online account and enter your correct password you are asked to verify who you are via a device which you have sole possession of and that runs on a different ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad assortment of devices can be utilized as this additional form of ID validation including an iOS or Android smartphone or watch, a token, a landline telephone, etc. You can enroll multiple authentication devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security
After you confirm your identity using your validation device, you are permitted to run your application or utilize your VPN or remote desktop service. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification service enabled, you can simply tap "Approve" on your supported smartphone or smart watch. This improves the login experience by making the verification process nearly instantaneous. For traditional secondary units, such as a token, you can copy a temporary password.
